Good for you Paul. Question the tartan register says: Tartan date: 10/03/1961 , is that an error? I saw, too, that it indicated you wanted the greatest possible pleating options, what are some of your prefered ways to pleat it?

The date isn't an error, but i wasn't sure if they would have accepted it!
I'm not sure about the pleating, I like the idea of the alternate colour tramlines, but I will enjoy the trials when I get around to ordering some....

Count me in on those who like the tartan. I look forward in anticipation to the finished product. I hope that we will get the pleasure of seeing the work in progress through one of your detailed photo narratives.

How much does it cost to have a tartan woven do you know?
"Texas will again lift its head and stand among the nations. It ought to do so, for no country upon the globe can compare with it in natural advantages." Sam Houston

"Cultivated mind is the guardian genius of democracy and, while guided and controlled by virtue, the noblest attribute of man. It is the only dictator that freemen acknowledge and the only security that freemen desire." Mirabeau B. Lamar

It can vary widely, depending on how much you get ,and who will weave it, there are only a few complanies who are prepared to weave small runs, and they tend to be trade only , but have a look at this site if you want to do it yourself, it will give you a good idea http://www.scotweb.co.uk/tartandesign/
they use the same weavers that I do, and the quality is very good.
Sorry i can't give exact figures, but there are so may variables, If you were a client of mine I would be able to work out the figures better.
